South Beach Wine & Food Festival

Ten Strangest Things at the South Beach Wine and Food Fest

The South Beach Wine & Food Festival wrapped up yesterday after a four-day whirlwind of dinners, brunches, parties, cocktails, and events.

Each year we're delighted by the food, impressed by the cocktails, and amazed by the sheer number of celebrities that come to Miami to party and mingle.

During such a week, we're bound to experience events that astound even us.

In the past years we've seen Paula Deen's pants fall down and Spike Mendelsohn dress up as a burger thief. This year gave us a few surprise moments, too.

Join us as we count down our ten favorite moments of weirdness at the 2012 SoBe Wine & Food Festival.
